SAP SuccessFactors

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a method for email senders to digitally sign email messages in a way that can be verified by email receivers. This allows receivers to verify that the message truly came from the sender, and has not been tampered with. DKIM is intended to address some of the flaws in the existing email system, such as spoofing, phishing, and message tampering.

  • Contact SAP Cloud Support team and provide them the following details in order to configure DKIM for SAP SuccessFactors:
  1. Company ID;
  2. Datacenter;
  3. Your mail domain details;
  • List all of the email domains you use in full.
  • Additionally, SuccessFactors allows customers to redirect outgoing emails through their own SMTP server (s). They need the following details for this:
  1. The condition (recipient domain)
  2. The customer’s SMTP server’s IP and port
  3. SMTP auth user and password if needed.
